Response to boston bean (Original post)

54. I often take a break not simply from DU, but from the words of news and popular culture...

I often take a break not simply from DU, but from the words of news and popular culture as absolutely as I'm able to do. Too often, I allow myself to get far too frustrated at the simpletons and dullards who pretend to be ignorant of spoonerisms and popular colloquialisms (no one on DU is *that* under-educated or sub-literate), or so-called adults righteously justifying a "hawt celebs thread", eventually becoming the golden calf of their irrational little cabal.

So, I just tune out for two, three, sometimes four days-- DU, news (print, broadcast, etc). I did so this past weekend, and spent a glorious weekend in silent beauty and ignorant bliss.

Afterwards, it's still worth it. I promise.
